Donate to One of the Most Efficient Non-Profits in Los Angeles

Help Combat Hunger with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank Today.

A mother and her two kidsSince 1973, the LA Regional Food Bank has provided 1.6B+ meals to those facing hunger.

The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is proud to be recognized as one of the most efficient non-profits in our community. With a Platinum transparency grade from Candid in 2023, and a 4/4 star rating from Charity Navigator, you can trust that your donation will be used effectively to combat hunger.

How do I know the  Food Bank is Highly Efficient?

One great way to evaluate nonprofit organizations is to evaluate accolades from nonprofit confidence websites like Candid and Charity Navigator, and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has excellent accolades, as mentioned and linked above. Another metric to evaluate is the percentage of funds that are spent in the community versus the nonprofit’s overhead.

It takes money to run a nonprofit, especially one like the Food Bank. We own and operate a fleet of trucks and have highly trained and licensed drivers. We distribute millions of pounds of fresh produce and frozen protein items, so we have massive walk-in freezers that need to be kept cold. We operate two hundred thousand square feet of food storage with racks from floor to ceiling, so we need forklifts and licensed drivers. We also have staff to help raise funds and conduct government advocacy programs. All of these expenses are essential in the fight against hunger. It simply wouldn’t be possible to have a Food Bank as large and effective as the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank with a 100% volunteer workforce, no facilities, and no equipment.

If a nonprofit reinvests 85% of what they raise into the community, but needs 15% to run the operation itself, that’s a success in itself. However, at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, 97% of all revenue goes to our programs which are designed to fight hunger. Only 3% is utilized for essential functions in logistics and administration.
